Meeting point easy to find , guide had a sign so easy to find. The Guides knowledge was endless , every room we went into he knew the history behind the room and the paintings. The tour went by so quickly two plus hours later we felt like we had just started.

Great

Booked the tour through the app. The guide, Maurizio, proved to be well prepared and available! It should be noted that the tour lasted over two hours, which was more than appreciated by everyone and which demonstrates the passion of the guide for his work. The tour was in fluent and adjective English. Recommended
